If you've been a fan of the prior Atelier games released in North America you're probably already aware of Atelier Ayesha, the latest game in the long-running series. Tecmo Koei, the new publisher for the series outside Japan, has announced the official release date for the game in North America.
Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk follows the story of Ayesha Altugle, a girl who has been living alone in a secluded workshop ever since her grandfather died and her younger sister went missing a few years ago. She supports herself by making and selling medicine. As the story begins, she finds out that her younger sister IS alive somewhere in the world. Now, she must devote herself to finding her younger sister.
Atelier Ayesha: The Alchemist of Dusk will be available in North America on March 5. NIS America, the previous publisher of the series, is still in charge of the localization even with the change in publishing duty. However, only a normal release of the game is planned and the voice track will be dub-only as opposed to the dub/sub options found in the PS3 Arland trilogy of games that preceded Ayesha.
